about what's going on. but my sense is like yours and i think as george said as well, too. the u.s. government is starting to take some of the steps that i described, whether it's working with the gulf cooperation countries in terms of enhancing their defensive and ballistic missile defenses and security cooperation. i think that's the right thing to do. some of that actually started in the last administration. remember secretary rice started to have meetings with the gcc countries plus the saudi arabia and jordan i believe. and egypt. i'm sorry, you're right. and she started talking to them not about iran, but also started talking about okay, how do we do with regional security. and secretary continue may remember early on when she went to the gulf. she said something about the importance of defenses. and a lot of commentators interpreted that as many were giving up on stopping iran from having nuclear weapons and she quickly clarified that no that's not the case. the challenge for the administration or any other administration is how do you shift from the diplomacy of prevention

partners, and the international community. this review describes how the u.s. will reduce the role and numbers of nuclear weapons with a long-term goal of the nuclear- free world. driven by the changing nature of the security environment, the npr opuses on five key objectives. preventing nuclear proliferation and terrorism. reducing the role of u.s. nuclear weapons. maintaining strategic deterrence instability at a reduced nuclear force levels. strengthening regional to terrence and reassuring u.s. allies and partners. sustaining a safe, secure and effective nuclear arsenal. to these ends, the npr shows significant changes to the posture. some of the calculated ambiguity is removed. if a non-nuclear weapon state is in compliance with non proliferation treaty and obligations, the u.s. pledges not to use or threaten to use nuclear weapons against it. if any state eligible for this assurance or to use chemical or biological weapons against the u.s. or its allies or partners, it will face the prospect of a devastating conventional military response. still, given the catastrophic potent

the context of president obama's larger vision for a reduced role of nuclear weapons in u.s. national- security policy. a year ago in propagate a speech where he pledged to reduce the dangers posed by nuclear weapons, as well as a goal of a world free of nuclear weapons. i think that over all decision is rooted in a growing bipartisan consensus that the nuclear status quo is no longer tenable, that nuclear-weapons are now and liability. the dangers posed by a spread two additional states, as well as potential threat of nuclear terrorism, brought the world on the verge of what one might call the proliferation tipping point. so i think the president of all vision is rooted in that danger and he outlined a number of points steps in prague, while noting that a world free of nuclear weapons and not something likely to happen in his lifetime but a number of steps and that we can take on the way. one of the things he mentioned was a new arms control reduction agreement between the united states and russia. he talked about securing and safeguarding all vulnerable nuclear-weapons usable mater

capabilities. finally, any decision to proceed to the engineering phase, the u.s. will give a strong preference to refurbishment or reuse. this makes clear that the replacement of nuclear components would only be undertaken only if critical management program goals cannot be otherwise met and it specifically authorized -- and is specifically authorized by the president. these are the principles which -- with which we intend to maintain the president's position. this review goes further than that. it provides an outline of the resources that we will need to get the job done. the review calls for the modernization of nuclear weapon and the structure and sustainment of the science and technology base which is required to support the full range of nuclear security missions. this is reflected in the president's budget request which requires a 13.4% increase in funding for the nsa. this investment is critical for addressing our aging and the structure and enhancing our efforts against nuclear proliferation and terrorism. it will also allow the u.s. to reduce many non-deployed warheads currently kept

u.s. intelligence community in the last assessment said they could have a nuclear weapon sometime between 2010, that's now, and, you know, the end of this decade. maybe we're still talking that time frame. but they have the wherewithal to build nuclear weapons. the question is, will they make that final decision? i think that's what george perkovich said. maybe we can still influence that final decision. i'm worried that they are going to make that final decision. they're going to decide it's useful to have those weapons so we need to figure out how do we live with that? [inaudible] >> just two quick supplements to what greg said. on why it's taking iran so long. and i would argue, you know -- i'm not sure they made up their mind. they're the only state that has sought nuclear weapons while being in the nonproliferation treaty. which actually slows things down and complicates things enormously and raises the stakes if you get caught. israel, india, and pakistan acquired nuclear weapons but were never part of the nonproliferation treaty. north korea broke out -- it joined -- it joi

president is saying? >> the idea is that u.s. firms can do for u.s. taxation's if they locate activity offshore. you can think of it as being like this. if you want to sell in germany, you have to compete with companies that are producing comparable products at a tax rate that is a few points lower. one way that you can do that is to locate a subsidiary in ireland and then that subsidiary will sell to germany and the profits will land in ireland. it seems crazy to assert that the company that does that is evil. then we would take away the opportunity for the u.s. firms to compete in germany. there would probably lose. right now, there are multinationals because they are allowed to avoid u.s. taxation. the way that you attract business to the u.s. is to make it so that you do not have to go to ireland to go through germany. if you wonder why there are so many unemployed people, it is amazing that they would say something like that. >> i think that what the president said it is just old- fashioned mercantilism. there is some confusion as to what multinational companies do. i could take a

yield if the u.s. data continued to surprise on the strong side. but what we gathered was there was little failure because china was trying to send a message to the u.s. about its effectiveness in influencing treasury yields. but now that the u.s. treasury has agreed to postpone the report, i think the big tone into the treasury auctions will come back. therefore, we feel that the treshy yields at 4% are now attractive. >> so you think it was purely political? because some out there say, look, there is a weakening demand for u.s. treasuries because of their sovereign debt level. >> there's room for trepidation. we feel yes, sovereign debt is a concern. but ahead of the u.s., there are other countries that are even bigger concerns. you could name japan, the uk, etcetera. weflt, therefore, the u.s. treasury at 4% is attractive to balance key assets with safe haven assets, as well. we have a lot to talk about over the next hour, that was anantha nageswaran with julius baer. now to london. >> saxo bank is back to a slow start as we begin this second quarter of the year. joining us now i

direct complicated logistically challenging operations that could strike u.s. interests abroad or at home and, i think the other thing to note is that the threat in some ways, as i noted about al qaeda of the arabian peninsula is a bit more distributed than it was before and a lot of these groups are capable, a lot of these groups, al qaeda in arabian peninsula certainly and other groups aspirationally are able to conceive of operations themselves and are of, you know, tapping their way forward to carry them out. again, i think that we are doing better attack call counterterrorism than we have ever done before but i think it is a die ma'amming and evolving situation and i would note one new complexity we face is we've seen significant uptick in domestic radicalization which obviously will complicate matters significantly. we have seen, you know, half pakistani, half american, using chicago as a facilitation point for operations in india, denmark and elsewhere. we have seen five young men from virginia turn up in pakistan on their way to the fatah. we continue to see a trickle of indi

they said they can do without changing the doctrine. that does nothing to change u.s. capability, and i think that is being conveyed to the allies. the allies tend to be japan and some of the nato states. in japan, the japanese government actually came not and said, please do take away the cruise missile the u.s. had been detaining, even though we did not feel we needed it, but we retain it as a reassurance. the japanese of the be removed in support of disarmament, and in nato, the foreign ministers of germany, the netherlands, norway, belgium, and luxembourg, they ask that nato take on this issue of taking on deterrence with the agenda of seeking disarmament, so the environment is changing from the cold war, where in europe after one was worried about a massive soviet invasion, or the allies would not feel secure if we did not have nuclear weapons to deal with massive superiorities, so now the situation where it is reversed, the russians are going to be slowing the disarmament process because they're worried about nato security against russia. none of that the with the middle ea

apparently given the same tour. i don't know whether a particular u.e. anxiousle was pointed out. this was the prefabricated structures under which the missiles were being assembled and shielded this activity had been imported from the member state. but he probably was told that much of the equipment imported was ordered by trading companies operating in another member state, dubai in order to vate export controls. the u.a.e. certainly knew this was happening. once after i walked into the offices of one such trading company in dubai while reporting for the financial times, the dubai authorities complained to the british government. this was in 1980. yes, 30 years ago. the u.a.e. would probably now prefer to forget the sheikh's nuclear tourism. . two other states, it is the protection offered to other allies. it might be the energy security. nuclear science has much to offer, but it also carries considerable risk of nuclear weapons falling into rove hands, and even -- into the wrong hands. it might appear all good people would think the same way, but i suspect that is not the case. the thic

example, china's access to u.s. markets would be impeded in any way if they continue to support iran and north korean nuclear program which they're really supporting, although their rhetoric is on the other side. so as long as we try to persuade these countries that they ought to change their policies because they don't yet understand what is in their national interests, i think we're doomed to failure. our unwillingness to bargain, to threaten, to make concessions dooms us to a world in which iran and north korea have nuclear weapons and that will be a very dangerous world. >> congressman, you were paying attention certainly to the president's remarks in meetings in prague. surrounding the signing of the new start treat yifplt and i wanted to ask you as the sanctions go, in terms of the russian radio sponse, are you confident that there will be any meaningful sanctions that the u.s. and russia together will have any greater way convincing china and others to go along? >> i think we'll made headway toward truly meaningless sanctions. even our administration is talk about smart sanctions

weapon against the u.s., a u.s. retaliatory nuclear strike is an active option. second, biological, chemical weapons of mass destruction. if a country were to attack the u.s. with a biological or chemical weapon, a u.s. nuclear strike is off the table. if two conditions are both met. one, the nation attacking the u.s. with germs or chemicals has no nukes. two, the same nation attacking the u.s. with germs or chemicals was ostensibly abiding by nuclear nonprolifera commitment. secretary of defense gates outlined the u.s. nonnuclear response to a biological or bot conditions are memet. >> if any state eligible for this assurance were to use chemical or biological weapons against the united states for its allies or partners, it would face the pros secretary of a devastating conventional military response. >> reporter: secretary gates also isolated north korea and iran as exempt from the assurance of a nonnuclear response. >> we essentially carve out states like iran and north korea that are not in compliance with mpt and basically, all options are on the table when it comes to countri

. it can already reach u.s. allies and bases in the middle east. the last administration and this administration, 3 round of international sanctions. the choice of two path, negotiation or isolation, iran's leaders ignored our choice, using negotiations and partial collaboration to divide the international community, stave off international sanctions and continue their nuclear pursuits. i can only assume iran's leaders calculate the influence and security that they see as provided by nuclear weapons or by reaching the threshold of having them outweigh whatever condemnation and sanctions emerge from the multilateral process. increasingly i would argue we must base our plans and diplomacy on the assumption that iran will have nuclear-weapons. did i mention i am speaking for myself? i want to make that clear. iran's leaders, once nuclear-armed, may not be so suicidal as to launch nuclear attacks against israel, the united states or their partners or allies around the region but iran's leaders may engage in nuclear brinksmanship. dangerous as, tory behavior to try to intimidate neighb

upgrades that involve more upgrades and more countries, combining u.s. funded upgrades with upgrades we convince countries to do themselves. we need a broader approach to the fewer places that we can achieve greater security at lower-cost. that means consolidating all kinds of things, also warheads and plutonium that your places. with more kinds of incentives and more kinds of policy tools. we're working on converting research reactors is available use high enriched uranium. there really aren't needed, it can be quicker and easier to give them incentives to shut down, give scientists contracts that doesn't require a research reactors. we need a broader set to move toward more stringent global standards for security. there are countries like pakistan, but we do need a base line everywhere, given that we're facing terrorism of a global reach. >> a question about institutional oversight, states can request that they committed help them form their own plan, but it is all on the ballot -- a voluntary basis. anybody can assess what threat and they think is prevalent in that particular coun

heard the iranian people and iran's trading partners. it is easy for the u.s. to talk about sanctions. we cannot have a big trading relationship with them. it is a lot harder with russia and china, particularly china. the effort right now, since iran has really refused to comply with u.n. security council resolutions, and even the olive branch offerings in the fall to get back to the negotiating table, we are engaged in an effort to get another round of resolutions. the issue is will china at best support or a not so bad outcome would be if they abstained and how much will russia support a new round of sanctions? there are a lot of things that could be done outside the u.n. security council and a lot of those measures that deal with transactions at banks have been helpful but if they show no sign of either returning to the negotiation table or halting their enrichment program. i think we are in a slightly better position. the chinese have shown a bit more flexibility. until now, they have taken a principled stand against sanctions but we will have to see. this security summit next wee

defenses that can protect the lion's territory and deploy forces. second the u.s. and nato should strengthen security relations with key arab partners, particularly egypt, iraq, jordan, saudi arabia, and the gulf states. consultations on the security risks of iran's nuclear activities would be a first step. subsequent steps could include bilateral exercises, combined contingency planning, foreign military sales and missile and air defenses that can extend protection to regional partners and operate with their own defenses. third, the united states and nato should act to discourage further proliferation. they can reduce their incentives to proliferate. also iran must be denied any benefit from its nuclear arms. the world may have no choice but to live with a nuclear armed iran but we should not accept it or legitimate it. other would be proliferators should look at iran, even with nuclear weapons and see that treaty violations bring penalties instead of prestige and sanctions instead of security and isolation instead of influence. finally nato needs to consider the implications for

beyond efforts to stop the harm it the u.s. and its citizens and its allies and its interest. as president obama put it, a campaign against extremism will not succeed with bullets or bombs alone. we've looked now at key regions. i'd like to turn back to some key principles. to combat terrorism successfully we have to isolate extremists from the people they pretend to serve. often they do this themselves. the indiscrimanting target has alienated populations and for support of the group's political program. it's outraged clerics and former allies who in many cases who have spoken publicly against terrorism. of course, we can't count on al-qaeda to put itself out of business. so we're focusing our efforts on undermining the group's narrative and preventing the radicalization of vulnerable or alienated individuals. in the government we call these efforts countering violent extremism. and one of the first things i did in taking office was create a unit in our bureau to identify drivers of extremism and develop programs to counteract them. we're hard at working developing a better unde

million cars in the u.s. were recalled for that problem. toyota has two weeks to respond to the proposed fine; so far no comment from the company. meanwhile, some "braking" news from general motors. after those problems at toyota, g.m. is now promising brake override systems on all its vehicles within two years. the move is in anticipation of stricter u.s. regulatory standards. the override system cuts power to the engine when the brake and gas pedals are pressed at the same time. right now, only a handful of g.m. vehicles have this feature. >> tom: more news tonight about banker pay. it appears c.e.o.s at the nation's regional banks are benefiting from the economic recovery, and a twist on government bailouts. ohio's fifth third bank today reported c.e.o. kevin kabat's 2009 pay at $5.2 million. that's a 56% jump over last year, even though the bank still owes over $3 billion in government bailout money. fifth third's not alone. alabama's regions financial and cleveland-based keycorp also boosted executive pay; both are still on the hook for billions in tarp money. regions c.e.o. salary
